Rotherham Children’s Festival

For Picture This, we have been studying a painting by Pieter Bruegel called Children’s Games.  We have made a material collage of our school playground which is on display at Magna.  We have also written poems, instructions and descriptions relating to the painting.   Some children in Year 5 also went to the ‘Big Blast’ where they play the Glockenspiel.

Ofsted.

The official report will be published on the Ofsted website on 16th May. Shortly after this it will appear on our school website, and children will be sent home with a copy.

Bug Books.

It was lovely to see so many children as bugs or their favourite book character when we launched our new reading scheme. These books will now start to appear in your child’s reading book bag.

In the next few weeks your child will be bringing home a username, password and school password  so that they can access some books online and participate in online activities. Don’t worry if you do not have a computer or internet access as there are times when they will be able to do this in school time.

BEAST CREATOR

To engage pupils in their new topic, Year 5/6 carried out a mini-beast hunt around the school. Armed with potters, buckets, spades and bug carriers, the children explored several areas including the field. Filled with excitement, they hunted under logs, in flowerpots, underground, in bushes and collected slugs, ladybirds, snails and lots of woodlice.

Hola Mexico and Blood Heart

All the children in Y5 and Y6 have enjoyed learning about Mexico, its food and celebrations; and how the heart works this term. Throughout the term, they researched about their main festival, The Day of the Dead, and finally created their own festival with paper decorations, mexican foods and tried mexican dancing.  In the second half term they have learnt all about how the heart works and the importance of keeping healthy.
